Decorate To Celebrate Challenge #87

Good Morning Friends & Welcome Visitors!

Today is a new challenge at Decorate To Celebrate! This challenge is "Anything Goes".  (No cards allowed unless they are 3-D box cards).  It is really getting chilly here in Maryland so for my design team project I decided to make a Scarecrow Hot Chocolate Gift Holder.  I know a little boy that doesn't like candy very much but he loves hot chocolate; I thought he might like finding this in his trick or treat bag.

Here he is without the hot chocolate inside.

I used the mug from SVGCuts "An Afternoon At Aunt Elaine's" I used Powder Puff Chalks from Quick Quotes to give him his sweet face.  I am getting super addicted to them.  It seems like no project is done until I chalk it.  The twine is Halloween Orange Licorice, and everything else is from my scraps/stash of embellishments.

I am entering this project into the following challenges:

Craftin' Desert Divia's -Link It Up Party #43 - Brown & Orange
Clear It Out Challenge Blog - "Use Orange Stash" I used Orange Button, Orange Scrap Paper, Orange Clothes Pin, Orange Candi.
Crafty Sentiments Designs - Trick or Treat or Something Sweet
Die Cuttin Divas - Challenge #189 Halloween
Party Time Tuesdays - PTT Challenge #187 Anything Goes
Craft My Life - October/November - Anything Goes But A Card
D.L Art - October Linky Party
Not Just Cards - Challenge #5
Creative Cutting Challenge - Challenge #41 Anything Goes
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge- Challenge #282 Autumn/Halloween/Thanksgiving/Bon-Fire Night

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you will stop by Decorate to Celebrate to see what the rest of the design team has created and then come play along with us!


You're Spooktacular

Let's Scrap Layout Day!

Hello my friends & welcome visitors!

Today is the day for a new sketch at Let's Scrap Sketches this is a great sketch!

And here is my take on the sketch.

You can click on the photo to make it larger.  I know that I am a little "State Proud" I just love the State I have lived in all my life.  I have traveled all over the world; but I am always so happy to return to my little home in my little town here on the Chesapeake Bay.  I love that I can watch the bay change with the seasons.  I have to say that the bay in autumn is so lovely!  Almost all of the recreational boaters are off the water and you can drift lazily along enjoying the crisp fall air and sunlight as it glints off the water.  

I don't think I would have made this layout if I were not on the Let's Scrap Design Team.  I am so grateful that they have reminded me how important it is to "catch these memories" while I can.  I would also like to remind you that we have several challenges going on over at Let's Scrap right now.  We have a challenge from our DT Suzanne you can find that HERE.  There is also a Month Long Sketch Challenge, to read about that, please  go HERE.

I am entering my scrapbooking pages into the following challenges:

Lasting Memories Layout Challenges - LM #210 - Nature's Glory
Craft Hoarders Anonymous - #18 Layer It!

Thank you so much for stopping by my friends and thank you so much for all of your comments!  I hope you are having a lovely Autumn!
